Fidgety fogging verse!

Peoples are nodding to their words,

Beats aren't so bumpy

so he wander wanders

Bottoming the plotter who thinks its
'Why bother?'

As a holy day walker,
streamin the fodder

Premium Member Emily and the Ancient door
Young Emily sat gazing at a door, that with careful strokes was painted..
a starry, but moonless night. 
In wandering dreams of far away lands, nameless artist unacquainted, 
she wond'red what lay beyond the door held tight.

Her knees, now drawn together,...Read More

Bharathi's Modern Woman
Holding her head high 
with a resolute look;
possessing dauntless courage and wisdom,
She never feels subservient.

The emerging modern woman
fabricates her own traits,
by obliterating the customs
of engulfing in murk named ignorance;
and suppresses the routine
of living a melancholic life.

A leader's demise,

Birthday Wish
Who is interested in this tale?
They know you eat fish
You on occasion laugh but seldom smile
You always make a birthday wish
For wellness and fullness
Of people with want and need
Standing at the temple gates
Where gargoyles stare down in seeming greed.

Translation- Kamba Ramayanam
The peacocks dance
at grove near the cool pond;
and the lotuses brace
lamps like raised heads;

Nimbus clouds thrum
like loud drums;
and violet lilies scrutinize
the scene with bulbous eyes;

Hushed wavelets
array like curtains;
and the bees harmonize sweet songs,
like soothing tunes of (fish-shaped) harp;

Amidst this picturesque...Read More

 Lord Krishna's little dainty fingers,
nudge over the holes of his flute,
his scarlet red eyes camber,
coral red lips purse,
and little beads of sweat round ,
the arched eyebrows,
while raising the beguiling music.

The flock of birds abandon their nests,
encircle the Lord,

Translation
The immaculate music from the Veena,
The luminous evening full moon,
The cool pleasant breeze,
The generous spring season,
The buzz of the honey bees,
near a cool pond with fresh water flowers, 
and I perceive everything
under the shelter of my supreme Lord's feet.

To board on a city bus to my destination
The bus was stopped 'there'
In a distance from me

To somehow catch another bus,
That another bus was stopped
In the place where I previousy stood!

Long, long ago, there lived a priest,

One day, the weary priest had summons
From a destitute parishioner,
Whose husband, very old, was on his death bed.
